I think Inuyasha had a big comeback to wrap up. It seems a bit more common over there. But then, Inuyasha and FMP, among others, are continuing narratives that never finished their stories, so that's different from DB Super, I guess.
Thinking about new stories like Super and the new Sakurs Card Captor (and possible new Yu Yu Hakusho), I'm surprised Sailor Moon went for a manga reboot instead of an actual continuation to their story. I'm curious what adventures they face as adults.

I've seen CN schedules where they played TTG almost all day, but seriously who's watching CN besides little kids and a few man children.

Most kids watch streaming and choose what they want when they want, only younger ones need to have a tv turned on for them and let someone be the "dj", and kids like repetition. No different from when you as a kid watched the same VHS over and over. Many adult channels are just constant re-runs, sure you still have people tuning for shows that premier first on TV but that will be ending soon as well.

I still remember being called crazy when I said streaming would take over TV 10+ years ago when google video launched (before youtube).

As for most people complaining they don't really watch CN or Nick, unless they have children and are forcing them to like the stuff they liked as kids and yet they constantly complain about how CN was better when they were kids even though they don't even watch cartoons or CN or Nick or anything anymore because they're adults. Yes, grandpa, your childhood was better than everyone elses.

I don't know anyone who actually turns on the TV to watch Cartoon Network or any shows as they air anymore. Nowadays we just watch everything online whenever we want. It isn't 1992-2005 anymore.

Yeah, really. Not a high bar to clear, sure, but at least you gotta figure this couldn't be nearly that dull. Or pointless.

Same. Hoping it's good. The show's been pretty consistent in quality. Especially this season. Can only think of a few I didn't care for in season four.

Yeah, pretty much. There aren't a lot of reasons to really watch the channel itself in this day and age. You can catch a lot of it through other means. Kids still tune in to the channel directly though, I'm sure.

Am I reading that chart right? on Saturday/Sunday all CN plays is one show, Gumball for 48 hours straight?
From about six to eight, it seems. Remember, Adult Swim takes up the night, or it did last I paid any attention to the channel. Is Toonami still around? That might take up the weekend night slots too.

Loved the Aquaman joke at the end of the trailer.

Looks like Will Arnett is the voice of Deathstroke, not Batman this time.

Is the animation any better than the regular series? I don't watch it regularly so I don't know.

I haven't watched in a while but it definitely seems better quality.

Will Arnett sounds like Seth Rogen to me. At least in this trailer. Cool that Nicolas Cage is doing this. I like just about every movie he has done.

This looks completely hilarious. I cannot wait. Haven't seen a movie be so much of a meta joke since the South Park movie.

A little disappointed that Arnett isn't playing Batman so we could get a Lego Batman Movie reference, but he's great as Slade too.

Can't speak for everyone, but the writing and humor didn't really grow on me.

The trailer is very funny. I won't see this in theaters but when it comes out on online streaming I'll watch it, so I'll see it a few months later.

On 1.5x speed of course.

Mostly cause it takes established characters and turned them into kiddy joke versions of themselves. Literally 10 times worse than what the 80's TMNT did to the Mirage TMNT.

It looks like this is set before "The Return of Slade" as it's how they meet him for the first time in this continuity.

It's nice you think continuity matters in a show where they've died like ten times.
